The fastest way to learn a language

Immersion abroad with EF Immersion abroad is proven to be the fastest and most efficient way to become fluent in a language. Tailor-made curriculum Our courses are customized for you to achieve your goals, whether you need to learn grammar, pronunciation, or the vocabulary specific to your industry. In class, you´ll practice professional situations such as making appointments, going over work-related reports and presentations or broadening your vocabulary with industry-specific terms. Lessons are kept relevant to your profession and language needs. All our courses include a 6-month basic online language learning license. Best-in-class teachers At the heart of EF´s learning excellence are our exceptional teachers, all of whom possess both a functional and businessoriented understanding of your job-specific training needs. We put a lot of effort into attracting the best teachers in the field. As such, all of our teachers have a TEFL qualification (or equivalent), and a minimum of two years language teaching experience.

Faster learning through cultural exposure and social interaction Experts agree that the fastest way to make significant improvements in a language is to be immersed in a country where it is spoken. This is largely because it is only through immersion that students are exposed to informal learning experiences. We know that long-lasting progress and true language fluency only really come when students become confident enough to converse in social situations and understand cultural nuances contained within that language. That´s why our courses include exposure to cultural traditions and customs, and set aside time for plenty of networking opportunities. Progress reporting Rigorous needs-analysis and state-of-the-art progress tracking help us determine your specific training needs in relation to your job and to your goals. At the end of your course, you will take home an official Progress Report and a detailed Academic Record.

A customized approach We tailor-make your course in three simple steps

1. Your current language level

2. Your language needs

3. Your course preference

We establish your current language level and the level you want to achieve.

Whether you need general business English, industry-specific language, writing, or speaking skills.

You can choose from our private one-toone, combination, group, short refresher or longer fluency courses.

Our courses

Private course The fastest way to fluency: one-to-one training with a private teacher Maximum individual attention This highly intensive course provides you with your own personal language teacher whose sole mission is to help you reach your learning goals. That means you always progress at your own pace and your teacher has the ability to react with total flexibility to your individual learning needs. Throughout your course, you will have plenty of opportunities to practice your new skills with fellow learners at coffee breaks in the lounge, over lunch in town, or during organized outings and evening activities. One-to-one instruction means results A dedicated teacher means that you can practice by using materials relevant to you and your role. For speaking practice, you might role-play a marketing presentation, to improve reading comprehension, you might analyze an article from the daily newspaper and for listening skills you could watch an industry-specific video in our multimedia center. To address grammatical issues, your teacher may have you complete exercises from EF’s own course book series.

Charges Other Than Tuition: Included in the course fee is a US$400.00 housing administration fee, which is non-refundable. All extra costs, such as books, supplies, equipment, laboratory fees, rentals and any similar charges not included in the tuition must be clearly stated in the enrollment/application documents. Such charges are not subject to the refund computation but are limited to those materials that are distributed and attributable to the portion of the program in which the student is enrolled. Students are bound by the terms as defined in any student housing agreements. Cancellation and Re-booking cover EF offers optional Cancellation and Re-booking cover for a one-time fee of US$110. This fee must be paid at the same time as the Enrollment Fee and is non-refundable. If you choose to take Cancellation and Re-booking cover and are forced to cancel before departure due to illness, or illness in your immediate family, EF will refund the full Course price, irrespective of when notice is received. The cover fee itself, the Enrollment Fee and the Courier Fee are non-refundable. Note: a doctor’s certificate must be provided with each claim. The cancellation and Re-booking cover is only valid for one Rebooking or one Cancellation. Travel and Medical Insurance Coverage All students are required to have medical and accident insurance coverage. EF has negotiated and entered into a tailor-made travel insurance group policy with the insurance provider Erika Insurance Ltd. under which EF Education First Ltd and EF International Language Schools Ltd are the policyholders. Students may choose to be beneficiaries under this group policy. If the student does not wish to be covered by this insurance coverage, they will need to provide EF with a copy in English of the alternative insurance policy they have taken out individually. Please contact your EF representative for prices. Re-booking Fee Each time you request a change of course town, course dates, or type of accommodation after your initial enrollment, EF will charge you a re-booking fee of US$150 which is payable immediately. (This does not apply to students who are extending their course.) Late Arrivals and Absences If the student arrives late or are absent during their course, no refund will be granted.

Printing Errors While EF makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of its publications, it cannot be held responsible for typographical or printing error (including prices). Protection for Our Customers EF provides complete financial protection for customers, formalized according to EC directives, through an insurance policy that guarantees your money back, and your repatriation in the event of the company’s failure. Liability EF will not be liable in any way to the student in the event of any service, contracted to be supplied by EF, becoming impossible to supply by reason of industrial dispute or other cause outside the control of EF. EF will not be liable for loss, damage, or injury to persons or property howsoever caused, save where the liability is expressly imposed beyond exclusion by statute. EF’s Learning Guarantee Our experience shows that, on average, a student will progress to a new level of the EF scale upon completion of 2 weeks of language training. After level 8, progress from one level to the next may require longer (4-6 weeks) courses. This is due to the increased complexity of language acquisition at those levels Progress rate will also depend on individual qualifications such as mother tongue, attendance, time spent on homework and individual study techniques. If learning goals are not met, taking the above into consideration, our learning guarantee will allow you to study free of charge at our online school, until you reach your predetermined goals. The Learning Guarantee is valid for all courses offered in English at our Institutes in London, Boston and Cambridge.
